Project Documentary's "Citizen Journalism: Pamphlet to Blog" was written up by a United Kingdom journalism site. I like the description of CCTV as "a US based electronic media public training forum" The text follows the link.

Citizen journalism film released online
Posted: 23 August 2006 By: Oliver Luft

"Cambridge Community Television (CCTV) - a US based electronic media public training forum - has released online an educational video about the history of citizen journalism.

The 15-minute documentary Citizen Journalism: From Pamphlet to Blog is a guide to US citizen journalism through the ages - from Thomas Paine in the 18th century to the more modern hows and whys of being an anti-establishment news hound.

The film features interviews with talking heads from the blogging world - including Ethan Zuckerman of Global Voices - discussing, among other things, how newspapers have gone through major cost-cutting exercises as their revenues are leeched by sites like Craigslist."
